Mike Pence plans to enter the GOP presidential nomination fray June 7 with a campaign video and a kickoff speech in Des Moines, Iowa, according to a person familiar with his launch schedule. The former vice president, a longtime advocate of the priorities of traditional conservatives on social and economic issues, will join the race at a time when his onetime boss, former President Donald Trump, claims a majority in most national polls and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is in a clear second place. Redefining himself to Republican voters, most of whom know him primarily as Trump's vice president, will be a challenge.

So boring ... who in the world cares... millions of us believe he shirked his job and left us open to becoming Venezuela. What does America hold now for our dear children... unless of course, we manage to evade the FRAUD and get Donald J. Trump back in our White House.

The more folks that run in the GOP primary, the better chance that Trump is the nominee. DeSantis has a chance if he can get it to a DeSantis vs Trump race vs. DeSantis and everyone else vs. Trump.

I once heard Mr. Pence in person, speaking at a rally. He sounded pretty good. I thought he did a good job as V.P..... UNTIL he failed to stand up for honest elections on Jan 6th. NO WAY I would vote for him..... unless it was 'One or the Other' and the Other was worse.... like ANY of the Democ'RATS these days.

Bruce Springsteen had a moment that fans, bandmates and promoters dread when, during a concert in Amsterdam last Saturday (May 27), the rock legend had an on-stage fall. The accident happened mid-performance, as the 73-year-old artist returned from a stint in the pit and tripped up the stairs while carrying his electric guitar. Springsteen appeared to have a soft landing, as members of the E Street Band rushed over to check on him and help the Boss to his feet. “Goodnight everybody,” he yelled to the audience, as he gingerly made his way back to the center stage. Thankfully, it wasn’t the end of the show. The incident happened

In an 8-1 decision in which only Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson fully dissented, the Supreme Court ruled today that unions have to reimburse employers for damages caused by striking workers. The National Labor Relations Act does not confer immunity to unions or workers — the latest ruling from a court that has stiffened the boundaries for labor activities in the last few years: The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that federal labor law did not protect a union from potential liability for damage that arose during a strike, and that a state court should resolve questions of liability. The majority found that if accusations

The Scripps National Spelling Bee has a new champion: 14-year-old Dev Shah of Largo, Florida. The teen beat out his final opponent, eighth-grader Charlotte Walsh of Arlington, Virginia, by correctly spelling the word, "psammophile," which is defined by Merriam-Webster as "an organism that prefers or thrives in sandy soils or areas." "It's surreal," Shah said after being announced the champion. "I don't know if it's settled in. My legs are still shaking!" Prior to Shah's final turn at the mic, Walsh misspelled the word "daviely," making space for Shah to swoop in and take the victory.

Washington — The Senate on Thursday passed legislation to suspend the debt ceiling and limit federal spending, sending the bill to President Biden's desk to avoid a U.S. government default that would have caused economic chaos. The Senate adopted the bill, known as the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023, by a bipartisan vote of 63 to 36. Both sides acknowledged that the deal negotiated by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Biden was far from perfect but necessary to avoid a disastrous default. "I look forward to signing this bill into law as soon as possible and addressing the American people directly tomorrow," Mr. Biden said
Heads Roll at Twitter After The Daily

The ongoing controversy over Twitter’s censorship of The Daily Wire for alleged “misgendering” escalated on Thursday evening with the social media giant’s Head of Trust and Safety, Ella Irwin, resigning in the wake. That’s most likely because she and her department are the ones who made the decision to label tweets by Matt Walsh as violating Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policies. The result was a warning label being placed on the posts along with sharing disabled. Those moves came after Jeremy Boreing, CEO of The Daily Wire, revealed Thursday morning that Twitter backed out of a deal to show What Is a Woman, the outlet’s popular documentary about the militant transgender movement.

The Pentagon declined to offer additional contract details, including the price, scope and timeline of the delivery.

LACONIA, N.H. — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis lashed out at a reporter — twice barking “Are you blind?” — at the end of his first campaign event in New Hampshire on Thursday. DeSantis, who delivered his stock stump speech to an audience of more than 100 people at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Laconia, became noticeably agitated when Steve Peoples of The Associated Press asked why he wasn’t taking questions from the audience like most presidential candidates do in this state. “People are coming up to me, talking to me,” DeSantis said. “What are you talking about?

HOUSTON - Exxon Mobil Corp and Chevron Corp shareholders on Wednesday overwhelmingly rejected calls for stronger measures to mitigate climate change, dismissing more than a dozen climate-related proposals at their annual meetings. The results supported the two largest U.S. oil producers in resisting pressure from investor groups calling for the pair to follow European rivals in accepting tougher emissions reductions goals. Despite efforts by Shell PLC, BP PLC and TotalEnergies, protesters still stormed their shareholder meetings this year, seeking a faster shift away from fossil fuels. Their demands similarly failed. Exxon and Chevron's meetings were online, avoiding similar protests.

Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis hit the campaign trail in Iowa, after announcing his bid for the Republican nomination last week. His first speech was before hundreds of Republicans in an evangelical church in Des Moines and he also had an impromptu stop at Jethro’s BBQ Southside in the city. Team Desantis dubbed it “Our Great American Comeback Tour” with stops on Wednesday in Sioux City, Council Bluffs, Pella, and Cedar Rapids. During his speech in Cedar Rapids, DeSantis was dressed casually in jeans, and a blue collared shirt under a navy puffer vest (I think that’s the universal “governors uniform” these days) with embroidered campaign logo.

The House voted on Wednesday to raise the debt ceiling, marking the first step toward avoiding economic catastrophe just five days before the Treasury's deadline for default. Lawmakers easily passed the Fiscal Responsibility Act in a 314-117 vote, with 165 Democrats joining 149 Republicans to back the legislation. The bill, a bipartisan compromise crafted by Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and the White House, now heads to the Senate, where a single senator can hold up its passage. The vote comes after a massive whip operation by both parties, with Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) delivering McCarthy the support needed to get the bill across the finish line.

Target’s stock has lost a whopping $13.8 billion over the past two weeks, hitting its lowest levels in nearly three years as the “cheap chic” discount retailer continues to face backlash over LGBTQ-friendly kids clothing. Shares of the embattled chain sank 2.2% at $130.93 on Wednesday after dropping for eight straight sessions — the stock’s longest losing streak since November 2018 — giving the company a market capitalization of $60.4 billion. That’s off 19% from two weeks earlier on May 18, when the stock was trading at $160.96 on the eve of the crisis.
